BMW i8 Concept Spyder

Almost everyone has seen the BMW i8 concept that was featured in last year's Hollywood hit Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol but now BMW is showing off the BMW i8 Concept Spyder as one more car in the BMW i line up. The i8 Concept Spyder is an open-top two-seater with true sports car performance from a hybrid design (354 hp) with almost unbelievable fuel economy (up to 94 mpg).

I thought it was supposed to be released in the 2013 model year. 5 more years? Good if I start saving my pennies now I might be able to afford one of the tires. LOL.

I can only hope and dream that the price will be realistic and I will be able to buy one.

OK maybe 5 years is a bit much, but its not uncommon for roadster/cabrio variations of cars to come along 1-3 years after then coupe/sedan.

Its historically time to market from a rendering only stage is ~5 years.

Id also be shocked if BMW put out a car that looked this much like something out of star wars... Personally id be embarrassed driving that thing around it looks like a UFO.

I would love to be able to get one of them. If I had won the mega-million lottery I would have the 1st or one of the 1st ones! LOL.

I don't like it, if i spent that much on a car I don't think I would care about gas mileage even a little. They should put the v10 from the e60 m5 in it and send the power to the rear wheels with a 6 speed, then it would be great. It's supposed to be the ultimate driving machine, not a boring hybrid.
